The owner of this apartment, Mrs. De Florian left Paris just
before the rumblings of World War II broke out in Europe. She
closed up her shutters and left for the South of France, never to
return to the city again. Seven decades later she passed away at
the age of 91. It was only when her heirs enlisted professionals
to make an inventory of the Parisian apartment she left behind,
that this time capsule was finally unlocked.
